Concept

Organic Healthy Ramen San Diego

Menya Ultra Organic Wheat

- Special wheat flower we chose to make handpull noodles.

Homemade Noodles with Softly Scented Wheat
We make our homemade noodles with only salt and lye water. Our noodles contain no preservatives and artificial colors. Made daily, our noodles have a distinctive sweet wheat scent, springy and smooth texture that will suprise you.

Menya Ultra Umami Soup

- Enjoy the Taste of Umami

Tonkotsu Paitan Soup
Our signature soup is cooked over extreme high heat releasing the deep flavor of compressed Umami. Because we use the highest quality ingredients, no MSG is used. “Umami must come out naturally” This is the fundamental core in making the signature taste Menya Ultra is known for.

Menya Ultra Safe Ingredients

- Delicious and Healthy for Your Body

Roots of Menya Ultra
Mr Endo knows the importance in eating safe these days having experienced a food allergy. Like a mother, we prepare and use the highest quality ingredients as if we were cooking for our own children. Delicious and healthy food is important. For your well-being, this is root of what we believe in. We have devoted ourselves in delivering this to our customers every day for many years. Menya Ultra serves “Japanese Ramen” to you.

Our History
